JOIN US @ the
DIS TAILGATE!
Get your dragon gear on and join our DIS community as we meet up for a tailgate before cheering on our DRAGONS at the varsity football game on October 8th from 5:30-7:00pm. Some of our DIS dads have graciously volunteered to cook hamburgers and hotdogs for all of our DIS community at NO CHARGE! There will also be snacks, desserts, and water provided. All the food has been generously donated by WillowTree Custom Homes, Mayer LLP, and Progressive Powersports.  This will be an amazing way to meet other DIS families and enjoy a night together! It is the PINK OUT game. We will be set up on the north end of the parking lot behind the scoreboard.
*Please RSVP at www.dispto.com so we can get a headcount for food.*

If you want to go into the stadium after the tailgate to watch the game, tickets & parking passes for the October 8th varsity football game tickets are on sale now! You can purchase tickets here:
